I love Linne school and I am one of their biggest advocates. As a former student and a parent of two children that attended Linne I can t express how grateful I am to the principal, teachers and support staff for giving my children an excellent education. The teachers are amazing, committed, easily accessible and available to answer questions and the school strongly encourages parent involvement. Both of my children have received an excellent education and I would recommend this school to everyone.

This school in my opinion, is probably becoming more worse by the second. Last year teachers with high expectations got fired because low scores. Not because of how they taught but the opinions of the principal and lack of effort from children. Now all that I see is disgusting food, dirty floors, and fights. The staff start to change attitudes when parents are around(children tell me.) Parents should be more alert with schools like these. Linne has got to step it up, there are better schools in the city! They may have added programs but the teachers are the main reason children have lack of effort! Last thing is my child always comes in with so much to do whether test study, tons on homework or projects! I would like to have a break and talk to my child NOT about school but life. This school sucks the kids life out. Linne use to be a grand school when my last children went here.

Linne is one of those schools that you could Use as a model for the whole city. It's been a Neighborhood school that will accept students From anywhere is the city. They have programs in the Arts, Gym, Recess, ballet, violin, guitar, culinary, gardening and music. As a former parent who never left, I could tell you A lot about the changes from a school that had all Kinds of discipline problems, to a school that councils Students and parents with a full time counselor on staff The changes have been remarkable. Our school is the Gem of the neighborhood, the parents and community hold A yearly fundraiser the money raised is used to pay for Student rewards.

As a prior parent and community member, Linne has a lot of programs that weren't available when my children went here now they offer programs for the parents, students and community. Linne is a great neighborhood school something most parents are look for. The teachers and staff at Linne strive to making sure the students are held to the highest standards. CPS should use Linne as a model for all neighborhood schools.

Lots has changed since the Mr. Giglio days! Some of these comments are from 2005! Come inside while kids are inside and see for yourself how the 'good 'ol days' are gone but never forgotten!

I believe Linne is the best elementary school I have worked in! Most of the teachers are hard working, caring, and respectful. May the new principal, whomever it may be, treat all teachers equally and follow protocol whenever incidences do arise.

I was a former student at linne and i think this school was very good. I don't have any complaints all the programs at this school are great the teachers are very understanding and they help with work if you need more help. The teachers are very caring for the students. I am proud to say i have gone to this school.

I think Linne is an excellent school and they offer good programs for gifted kids.

I've been a parent at Linne for the past 14yrs. My girls have attended there since they were in Pre-k. Overall, Linne is a wonderful school with a principal and teachers who care very much for the education of every child. Sure, there will be those students and parents who will not be too happy with the discipline and teachings at Linne; but these are the students/parents who like to do their own thing and not follow the rules. They prefer to put their personal feelings first rather than an educational aspect to better the students. These parents and students lack education and fundamental values of what a REAL education should consist of. Mr. Giglio is a very caring man who has always put the safety and education of the students first at Linne School, and sometimes this causes some bad vibes from students and parents. Overall, Linne is GREAT.

This school is alright, to not point any teachers out, I as a student think that there's a teacher(s) that put down the students and that that teacher(s) accuse the students of something that's not even true, that's why I gave teacher quality a 3. I'm not saying that all the teachers are like that, but in junior high, that's how the teacher(s). Everything else is alright, the sports for 7th/8th, jean day, etc. In my opinion this school is an alright place. The pricipal and assistant principal, were really nice ppl to bad they are retiring.

My son has attended Linne since Pre-K. It is the only school he has attended. I feel they need more organization and more communication with parents. I don't know many teachers in the school and have came across very few who have went the extra mile to assist me in my concerns. By this I mean actually taking it in to their hands instead of passing me around. I have been in that situation alot. It would seem to me that it is your place of buisness and you would know what is going on in your school and where a parent can find the right sources. I just hope Linne will get organized and understand from a parent's point of view that it is very important to keep things together so kids do not fall through the holes.

Linne definately needs more space. The children have no recess. Yeah they might get choice time but when the weather is nice they do need to be kids and have a little interaction on the playground.Way to many students per class. I don't understand the split classes , like 6/7th or 7/8th. There are some good teachers but for the most part my child has had some pretty questionalble teachers. My child is actually carrying books home he don't need for home work. Everyday back and forth. He says there is no room in his desk and the teacher does not allow them under the desk or on top. This is ridiculous. The backpack is very heavy. Linne for the classes that are switching....think about putting in lockers or something. One more thing the kids can not even use the closet.?

I believe that more parental involvement will improve the overall success of the students learning experience. Academic programs are statisfactory. Although children are invovled in music and art programs more sports programs should be geared to help children become well rounded individuals.

I don't like this school I think that this school needs more space, more gym, more activities for their students. I also think that the school should give classrooms recess during the summer so that their students won't be in the hot school all day and get fresh air. I also think that they shouldn't give a teacher 34-42 students. how is one teacher going to teach that many children? that's why alot of kids aren't smart because that teachers don't take their time to help their students. The most that the school should give a teacher is 25 children and students should be limited because there are too many children in that school.

I think that this school isn't good and needs to get the resources they need to teach the children i know what I'm talking about. So my rating is a 2 and the gym classes need a better gymnastics teacher that will make children lose weight.

This is a great school. There are a variety of cultures the children interact with and learn about. The programs available are entertaining and keep the children happy. Afterschool activities are there for who ever wants to join. I have the greatest experience here at this school.

Mr. Giglio is a very dedicated pricipal who will get the job done and won't settle for nothing other than a job well done. He cares very much about this school and has always taken the extra initiative to make sure the students come first.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math.
